This pretty much sums up Governor Palin:

“She has an incredibly thin résumé, a serious lack of gravitas, no coherent philosophy and the people around her are amateurs,” another top Republican pol argued. “She’s finished.”

via Alaska’s governor Sarah Palin to resign, dooming her presidential pipe dream.

Sarah Palin to resign as Governor of Alaska.  Why would she do this? As governor she obtained real experience and she has made it clear she’s looking for a national office.

When she runs for the Republican nod in 2012, does anyone think that her bailing before any tangible recovery happens in the economy will insulate her and make her more attractive as a presidential candidate? Like it or not, she leads Alaska as governor. Why put down that responsibility now?
